Quotes:
Mr. Marshall:[after they sing a Christmas carol together] Well, it feels pretty comfortable to have another man's voice around at Christmastime.
Mrs. Marshall:I'm sure Barbara's doing her best to arrange that for you, Henry.
Barbara Marshall:Oh, mother.
Mrs. Marshall:Oh, darling. Maybe family jokes are in bad taste. They make the guest feel out of place.
Zachary Morgan:No, ma'am. I haven't felt so easy in a long time. This is the best Christmas dinner I ever had. Yesterday, I was a stranger here. I mean, I felt like a prisoner inside myself.

One of My Favorites, 20 April 2003
Author: PrairieCal

Criticize this movie as you will, call it schlocky, or cornball, or whatever, it will always be one of my favorites ... perhaps because it was one of the first late night tv movies I ever got to stay up late and watch at 12 yrs old. I lapped up this sentimental romance like a puppy laps up cream. It didn't occur to me to take it any way but seriously. And years later the sound of two stones hitting a lamp post at the end still makes my spine tingle.

Everyone else has outlined the plot, I'd just like to point out something really interesting. Ginger was around 33 when she made this movie playing a girl in her early twenties. And each time there's a close up of her face at Christmas, it's obvious the lens has been coated with vaseline or something... she looks softer and hazier than anyone else in the movie. "I'll Be Seeing You" is the epitome of old 1940's sentimental romances. And if you like that sort of thing, you'll love this one.
